Book Description Dr. Samantha Owens is starting over: new city, new job, new man, new life. She's trying to put some distance between herself and the devastating loss of her husband and children--but old hurts leave scars. Before she's even unpacked her office at Georgetown University's forensic pathology department, she's called to consult on a case that's rocked the capital and the country. An unknown pathogen released into the Washington Metro has caused nationwide panic. Three people died--just three. A miracle and a puzzle... Amid the media frenzy and Homeland Security alarm bells, Sam painstakingly dissects the lives of those three victims and makes an unsettling conclusion. This is no textbook terrorist causing mayhem with broad strokes, but an artist wielding a much finer, more pointed instrument of destruction. An assassin, whose motive is deeply personal and far from understandable. Xander Whitfield, a former army ranger and Sam's new boyfriend, knows about seeing the world in shades of gray. About feeling compelled to do the wrong thing for the right reasons. Only his disturbing kinship with a killer can lead Sam to the truth...and once more into the line of fire.

My Review This is the 2nd book in the Dr. Samantha Owens series. In this book we learn the background of Sam's new boyfriend, Xander Whitfield, and how he helps her to solve the murders of those who died when an unknown pathogen was released on a Washington D.C. metro. The plot was very fast-paced and made for a page turner until the very end. The characters were well developed and I look forward to reading the 3rd in the series very soon. I highly recommend this book to those who like chilling tales with realistic events. ( )

This is the second book in this series. J.T. Ellison has taken the medical examiner from the Taylor Jackson series and started a new series. Dr. Samantha Owens has a new life in a new city and is seeing a new man after she lost her husband and children in a flood in Nashville. She is a very likable and smart character. I believe this series will be just as good as the Taylor Jackson series. ( )

This second book about Dr. Samantha Owens is even more exciting than the first book. It starts out with three seemingly unrelated deaths from an unknown gas in the subway - a college student, a senator, and a world renowned ethnographer. The plot twists and turns as each fact is revealed and each truth is revealed. It really captured my attention. To add to the plot, the characters were wonderful especially Xander's family. ( )

What I thought...

The description says it all...

This is my second book by J. T. Ellison and I must say she doesn't disappoint! I found this book very easy to read and get wrapped up in, I didn't want to put it down. The characters are well developed and realistic. The plot and twists are perfectly timed to keep you turning the pages, all 368 of them. I would definitely read more works by this author and highly recommend Edge of Black. You won't want to miss this one... ( )

Before she's even unpacked her office at Georgetown University's forensic pathology department, she's called to consult on a case that's rocked the capital and the country. An unknown pathogen released into the Washington Metro has caused nationwide panic. Three people died—just three.

A miracle and a puzzle…

Amid the media frenzy and Homeland Security alarm bells, Sam painstakingly dissects the lives of those three victims and makes an unsettling conclusion. This is no textbook terrorist causing mayhem with broad strokes, but an artist wielding a much finer, more pointed instrument of destruction. An assassin, whose motive is deeply personal and far from understandable.
